My wonderful Mom is coming for a visit tomorrow for almost 2 full weeks and I am knee deep in cleaning to try to get my house presentable (being the only adult around, I have let things slide a bit *eek*) So I totally forgot that I had a blog post all planned for today.
As I mentioned yesterday, I had several Unity customers request me to use specific stamps on my projects that I was working on over the weekend (I had put the plea out there to inspire me and it worked.) Ky was my first responder and she requested that I use this stamp from the first Unity Store kom (100% Happy... you can still find it for sale HERE!)
Like Ky, this stamp totally reminds me of the State Fair as does this gorgeous balloon paper from Webster's Pages so I decided to put them together.
The difficult part of this project was getting the style of that modern ferris wheel to match the style of the old looking paper. I did that (I think) by layering several other stamps in the background of the ferris wheel (vintage postcard, the swirl from 100% Happy, and Grandma's Button) and lots of inking.
*Unity Stamp Co. 100% Happy
